The new addition to the ASO’s concert season is the Pops Concert. Like one of the regular Masterworks Concerts, this performance features the full versions of the music performed during the Children’s Concert.
***NOTE – some local publications have listed the Pops Concert as free. That’s incorrect – only the Children’s Concert is free!***
The FREE children’s concert is one of the orchestra’s favorite events of the season. In conjunction with the music of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the orchestra will present images and text from the wonderful book of the same name.
Bring the kids onstage after the performance and have them try their hand at some of the orchestral instruments. This is a great way to introduce children to instrumental music, and a great way to enjoy it yourself! The musicians of the ASO stay onstage and are happy to answer questions about playing their instrument and getting a young musician started. Music Go Round will also be at the concert and have plenty of instruments to show and answer any questions about renting an instrument.
